lol to the OP...

both my roommates were smokers last year. I know for sure he refused to smoke before he played a game of bball in the greek intramural sports because it made him play worse.

i'm pretty sure biking is no different.

doesnt justify smoking but if your healthy enough i guess its not that bad
Okay, but smoking doesn't just affect the lungs FWIW. Pink lungs with coronary heart disease is not my idea of healthy.

If you chose to smoke, I chose not to subsidize your healthcare costs.

Thelma & Louise did it in pretty dramatic fashion. So did Queen Latifah in female 'gangsta' movie a few years ago. Don't want to forget Butch & Sundance, either.

The end of Como Agua Para Chocolate was a pretty sweet way to go. Or how about Hero? That was badass. Ditto with that hottie in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

I heard that smoking fills your lungs with a nice little substance called tar which makes breathing a difficulty in its self and eventually you will get to cough up mucus! Yay!

You're in luck. Studies have shown that smokers have lower health care costs than non-smokers. They die sooner of known problems that hospitals don't waste tons of money on.

Smoking while riding seems fairly common in quebec, the people who do so don't appear performance oriented.

Yeh, smokin J's while riding is pretty fun, although they burn much quicker with the wind factor..

If you ever sesh before a ride, I notice that riding behind buses etc. your lungs are much more sensitive to the fumes being pumped out the back. I think smoking after a ride is much better, although I always like to give myself around 2-3 minutes to get my blood rate down.

Whatever works for yourself!

When I was young, I'd see all these guys out touring on their fixies, and almost everyone of them had a short pipe stuck in their mouths.

Now they hobble into the bike shop on their walkers to tell the mechanics how fast they used to be. Sad. They could still be riding.

Show me those studies. Lung/mouth/throat cancer, pulmonary disease, asthma, emphysema, et al are NOT fast killers, hell, some are not killers at all. "Best" case scenario, at least from a public moneys standpoint, is that a person suffers no real ill effects up until the point where they suffer a heart attack and die.

In America, heart attacks are only fatal 40% of the time. 60% survive, but will require some form of medication, surgery, physical therapy, or all three. This costs MONEY. So does asthma medication, treatment for emphysema, and cancer treatment, which can go on for years and years and years.

I think you are confusing two facts here...

Smoking reduces your lifespan.

And looking directly at Chuck Norris's face causes cancer.

I used to ride with a guy who could pull a bag of weed out of his jersey pocket, twist one up and fire up while in the middle of a fast group ride. Then after sufficiently lit up, he'd hit the front and just ride away from us. The higher he got, the faster he rode.
